Suppy List

For the first class bring whatever paints you generally use—oil, or acrylic. Try to include: Alizarin Crimson or Quinacridone Red, Ultramarine Blue, Lemon Yellow (or equivalent—should say PY3 on the tube), Titanium White (larger tube). For other colours, try to stick to mono-pigments (paints with only one listed pigment). Recommended: Burnt Sienna, Yellow Ochre, Cadmium Red, Phthalo Blue, Cadmium Red, Cadmium Yellow.

Bring a small canvas or panel, a palette, brushes, rags, and whatever you need to clean your brushes.

Also bring in an interesting, single object which will be the subject of a series of small still life paintings. Also bring something contrasting which you can place your object on or against (such as tin foil, glass, coloured mat board, plastic, metal etc). A small lamp and extension cord would be helpful so you can control the lighting.

If you have some supplies already (mediums, paints, brushes etc) bring whatever you have.
